Odd Issue with Effects in a Div Not Submitting Variables

Reported by: Owned by: paul
Priority: critical Milestone:
Component: ui.effects.core Version: 1.5.1
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:

Here's the HTML:

<form action="search.php" method="get">

<div class="contentArea">

<a href="#" id="advancedOptsLink">Advanced Options</a>


<div class="contentArea" id="advancedOpts">



<td id="advancedOptsRow1">

<input type="text" name="test">






Here's the Javascript:

$("#advancedOptsLink").click(function() {

$("#advancedOpts").toggle("blind", { direction: "vertical" }, 600);

return false;


When I click on Advanced Options, any input values inside of the DIV layer with the id "advancedOpts" (such as "test" from my example above) do not submit with the form. I ran a test and checked and the input values onsubmit of the form and they all have names and values. Then, once I submit the form, they disappear (the URL doesn't contain the values). However, these values WILL submit if I change the Javascript to this:

$("#advancedOptsLink").click(function() {


return false;


So, it seems that effects are causing this issue here. Any ideas what to do about this? Thanks in advance for any help!
